Citta should also be classified according to feeling. For example, santīrana-
citta can be accompanied by upekkhā (indifferent feeling) and by
somanassa (pleasant feeling). Santīrana-citta which is accompanied by
somanassa can perform the function of santīrana (investigating)
through five doors and the function of tadārammana (registering,
occurring after the javana-cittas) through six doors.
When santīrana-citta is accompanied by upekkhā (and in that case it can
be kusala vipāka or akusala vipāka), it can perform five functions:
1. The function of santīrana through five doors.
2. The function of tadārammana through six doors.
3. The function of patisandhi, without being dependent on any door
4. The function of bhavanga, without being dependent on any door.
5. The function of cuti, without being dependent on any door.
